Love Chianti and Wine.
We spent an unforgettable day with Clare and Alessandro,
a beautiful couple from Seattle, Washington.
Alessandro comes from Italy, Vicenza, and they chose Franco Fadda’s Tours for a special day of their journey in Tuscany. Love Chianti and wine
We organized a special tour visiting in total three very different wineries.
We started with a friendly but professional meeting with a modern winery near Vagliagli, a beautiful medieval village in the North of Siena.
Vagliagli: The Valley of the Garlics was used in a famous American movie, “Letters to Juliet,” so we drove our new guests to the renowned spot. We took many pictures before the particular visit to the winery Terrabianca.
After the winery’s nice stop and private tour, we head up to the historical Castle near Radda in Chianti, where a professional team prepared a special lunch for our guests.
They welcomed them with a glass of Spumante Pinot Noir, and for every meal, they served a new wine, ending with a Vin Santo Dessert wine.
After the long but relaxing lunch, we drove to the east side of the Chianti Classico in the area of Gaiole in Chianti, where, in another historical estate, our dear friend Cristina showed us the property and offered a fantastic wine tasting with all the best Chianti Classico, older vintages
collection of Super Tuscan wines and the most delicious Vin Santo of the Chianti Classico.
During the wine tasting, Cristina also served some Tuscan fresh bread with the mono cultivar extra-virgin oil, a D.O.P. excellence of the winery.
After the wine tasting, we walked our guests to the historical cellars of the winery and after all the detailed explanation of the winemaking, we drove back to Siena and drove them back to the hotel.
